Need a 12 ga bear slug recommendation

Not a sabot one (as my barrel still needs a scope), but non-sabot slug.

Thanks!

Brenneke K.O. Hit like a ton of bricks and are not as soft as other foster type slugs. And Dicks sporting goods carries them if you need them fast, like for saturday

Thanks guys! I'll pick up a box of Dicks, I truly doubt I'll see any bears in my neck of the state, but you know now, and no time out in the woods is a wasted one!

I recommend you go with the 3in shell, make sure you hit the range first

not sure you'll find the 3" K.O. at dicks, but anything under 100 yds, the 2 3/4" brenneke will be fine. and I'd pick up 2-3 boxes, to site in and all.
